I honestly can't believe delusional people who theorize that BaldFat has already done more kissing/intimacy offscreen than what we've seen. The offer seemed more like a desperate attempt at consolation and Viktor even admitted he was bad at dealing with people who break down because he is that much of an airhead. It was like a pampered prince was asked to cradle a baby who was throwing a tantrum. Back to my point, people pointing out that Yuuri just casually threw aside the offer to have been because he was used to it. That I can agree, but because Yuuri is used to Viktor's humorous nature by now. Yuuri is used to Viktor being an affectionate person and that Viktor was just being well, Viktor. People who give that petty offer color as something else other than Viktor being himself and clueless to dealing with human emotions are ruining the show for me. I like it as it already is, even with schrodinger's kiss. But even that, we all know, despite all the discourse, was a legit kiss. TL;DR BaldFat aka Viktuuri is pure. No shenanigans happened offscreen.
>>
>>149887590
Some anons think Viktor was threatening to leave Yuuri in the last episode. Some anons think Viktor was spitballing ideas for if Yuuri were to choke. Everyone seems to be in agreement that Viktor wasn't serious either way and just did a dumb thing. Read the episode how you want to read it.

It just doesn't make sense story-wise. Kubo wouldn't make a confession off-screen.

>>149887693
It's not coming from a place of 'delusion', nobody particularly WANTS to think they've been together off screen where we can't see them. It's completely reasonable to find it odd that Yuuri is totally unsurprised by both the offer and the kiss. It's weird for any first kiss in a romance, considering the circumstances.

But arguments about their personalities are barely relevant anyway, it's all about the narrative and direction. We know they didn't get together off screen because that would be a waste of significant character development they could use in the plot, not because of Victor's personality or whatever in-universe argument there is.
>>
>>149887693
>I honestly can't believe delusional people who theorize that BaldFat has already done more kissing/intimacy offscreen than what we've seen

I don't understand why that's a bad interpretation

Even in the previous episode Yuuri said "I'm the only one who knows Viktor's love, I'm the only one who can satisfy Viktor". Seemed comedic until you add this episode.

I'm ok with both interpretations to be honest.

And I'm asking you /a/non, if you're feeling pressured, insecure and upset would you also not react to the notion of your idol offering to kiss you?

I don't care either way. If they already did stuff then it's realistic and doesn't take away anything from their cute relationship. One of the great things about this anime is that the leads are adults and not teenagers so it doesn't have to overblow first kisses and stuff since in reality your first kiss and first time having sex aren't always fireworks.

Though since it's anime that kiss at the end was probably was their first kiss and Victor just offered to kiss him before because he's openly affectionate.

When are we going to get rid of the blight that is fujoshits in the sport genre? They ruined yet another show.

>read up on this shit before the season

All that premise wasted.

The show was aimed at fujos from the start. Do you not know who the creators are? Enjoy the salt and move onto All Out.
>>
>>149890772
Yuuri's struggle was addressed already as:
1. Choking because of Anxiety
2. Fear of Intimacy and lack of romantic relationships (which is a must to skate and captivate the audience).
3. Low self-esteem/poor confidence.

There's nothing wrong with Yuuri's skills. He is really talented, but his emotional issues and lack of discipline fucked him up. Viktor already straightened that shit. And last episode portrayed Yuuri choking with his anxiety.
>>
>>149890796
But it's such a waste. Most sports works start when the protagonist is just starting out and show his way climbing to the top, this was a unique premise.

Actually I didn't. All of the summaries and previews talked about stuff that is barely relevant after half of ep1 (for example his mixed feelings about coming home after years) and none of them gave any hints about this being gay shit. None of the key people behind the production have a reputation of gay shit.

Goddamn this episode was romantic as fuck. Victor completely dropped that playboy shit and you can tell how serious he is about being his coach.

I think the whole garage scene and them walking back to the rink to that song is more of a highlight for me than the kiss.

Most of them treat him like an old friend. Minami idolizes him. Yurio was the only one to treat him like a rookie, and even then he was dragged back down into reality very quickly. Again, are we watching the same show? Am I being trolled?

>>149891134
Multiple people in-show have acknowledged his technical finesse in his step sequence and the fact that he's starting to land several different types of quads. Phichit even monologued about it in his FP a bit. That's not treating him like a rookie at all.

That's gonna be beautiful. They'll think that the episode containing chapter 50 means EM is "canon" (hilariously that's more EAr than EM considering Eren was staring at Armin most of the time) and then get squished into tiny pieces every single chapter after that.

>>149887349
Yes. Confirmed canonically gay/bisexual characters: Ymir, Historia, Uri (Historia's uncle), Kenny (Levi's uncle), and Reiner.
Eren and Armin are heavily implied to be gay and bisexual respectively but haven't been outright stated yet, outside of the author stating that everyone in-universe thinks Eren and Armin are dating. Levi has Ackerautism so it's hard to tell but the author's comment when questioned about what type of girls Levi likes was pretty...interesting. "I wonder if Levi even likes women. He likes tall people, I suppose."

I am curious why Yuri keeps saying it's going to be his last season. He's only 23, which even in show isn't that old. Is it because he wasn't placing? I mean, he was the #1 skater in Japan, even if he came sixth. Surely that's not something to quit over.

Before this episode I was convinced the best we can hope for is an ambiguous end. Now I think full homo is possible but who knows if they will go there. Skating comes first, neither of them are in a position to pursue romance.

I think it will end implying that they are about to embark on a new stage in their relationship. Stay Close to Me will be involved.

- Before the Recording:
First, the cast introduced themselves to each other. 'I look forward to working with you!'

- During the Break:
During the break, people practised the flow of the song for the scene where the audience sings 'A Certain Skater'. After making use of their practice, the real deal came out wonderfully.

- Recording of the Narration:
Fujisawa Tsuhiko, who does actual narration on real life figure skating shows, joined the recordings.
Fujisawa: 'I think I'll go with the polite form for this'
Staff: 'Alright then' ... But he repeatedly changed his wording to be more serious.

- Before the Real Deal:
Yuuri (Toyonaga): 'I'm a bit lost on how I should say 'I'll show you!'... but I'll try doing it off the cuff!'
Victor (Suwabe): 'I'll show you~!' *in a different intonation
Yuuri (Toyonaga): 'Oh no! If you do that, I'll get all messed up!' There were playful (?) times like that too.

- Real Deal Recordings, Start!
The voice acting cast stood in front of the mikes, and vividly brought the characters to life!
Sara: 'Hey, watch how you're saying that!'
At Yajima's proposal, the triplets' lines were altered to have a more...
Loop (Yajima): 'Kids would mimic lines like, Steamy! Sexy! Men!' ... a comical feeling!
After mic test, JJ and Emil had a deep discussion about the directionality of the characters. 'What do we do...'
Staff: 'Emil is a clear, pleasant kind of character.'

(last row of panels)
Staff: 'This line is a bit difficult, do you think you can divide up the recording?'
JJ (Miyano): 'It's no problem, since I'm JJ!!'
JJ's hot and deep acting drew laughs from the entire studio.
JJ (Miyano): 'IT'S JJ STYLE!!'
The recording of the Grand Prix Series was constantly in a state of hot air and laughter.

>>149893963
I think his coach's warnings about struggling to get back to peak condition will be true. If he does go back to skating maybe it will be his story about not being #1 anymore.

Victor looks much happier as a coach than winning GPF. He's old, if he keeps doing insane programs with all those quads he will fuck his body up.

But who knows. Yuri certainly inspired him.

If Victor stays as his coach we're guaranteed more relationship shenanigans. I want Victor and Yuri to go head to head at some point, though, so that we can see what Yuri is truly made of against his rival.

I would prefer to have a season two with Yuri actually competing for the gold (because he will get silver). I couldn't deal with Yurio's teen angst for 12 episodes.

Anything really. Though if he's stressed out I'd draw him a bath, then join him to massage his back and feets, then bake him a brownie, and watch whatever on TV or play scrabble while we eat. Then we go to bed and I spoon him, trying my best not to play with his hair until he falls asleep.
>>
>>149894206

He's obviously not Satan but he's right though. In stories like these where the flow of things seems steady and the MC's road to success seems all mapped out the peak is usually the moment where all hell breaks lose and everything seem to be over and the MC fails right before his objective. But thanks to the power of scenaristic chekhov guns, friendship or some other magic he'll succeed anyways.
For YoI it seems obvious that everything is over moment is either an injury or Viktor and Yuuri breaking up.
>>
>>149894206
I'd root for it, of course.
There won't be much left to talk about once Yuuri wins the GPF and Viktor's dick anyways. Yurio on the other hand has enough problems and an objective I think could sustain an entire season.
>>
>>149894206
I'm as much of a Fairyfag as they come, but I think he works better as a supporting protagonist. Also, I doubt downgrading Victor and Yuuri to side characters would be a smart move, lots of people watch the show for them.
Regardless, I would watch the shit out of it.

>Skaters' hearts are as fragile as glass.

>Let's try shattering his to pieces.

Huh, so anon earlier actually might've been onto something here. Viktor seems to be referring to the fact that athletes hate to lose, so it makes sense if crushing Yuuri's heart = saying he might lose. Wouldn't really make as much sense if it was just to threaten him with leaving, since not every skater is attached at the hip with their coach. Wasn't expecting that.
>>
>>149894838
I thinks it's safe to say it was both. Viktor leaving, and mentioning the possibility Yuuri wouldn't reach the podium.
>>
>>149894505
>once Yuuri wins the GPF
That won't happen this season.
>>
>>149894877
Probably the safest assumption. Yuuri seems to allude to both possibilities.

>Why would you say something like that, like you're trying to test me?

Sounds like it refers to Viktor leaving.

>I'm used to being blamed for my own failures!
>But this time, I'm anxious because my mistakes would reflect on you, too!
>I've been wondering if you secretly want to quit!
>Of course I don't-
>I know!
>[...]
>Just have more faith than I do that I'll win!
>You don't have to say anything, just sand by me!

Sounds like it refers to Viktor implying he'd lose.

So everyone was right basically.
>>
>>149894838
Yeah, the hypothetical threat of Victor leaving + Yuuri not winning was supposed to be a double whammy to get Yuuri fired up, but Victor fucked up when he didn't realize that Yuuri was actually most anxious about making Victor look bad.
>>
>>149894457
I feel like Victor is a sort of Manic Pixie Dream Girl. He seems like he came out of nowhere to pull Yuuri from his slump and in the end he'll grow unnecessary. He'll "fix" Yuuri and then float his impulsive ass to some other thing. I don't want that to happen but that's what I feel like will happen. I just don't see Victor as someone who'd establish a long term relationship with anyone, both because he himself doesn't want to and because he's incapable of doing that.

Yuuri's narration in the beginning of episode 1 sounds like Victor will go away, but I don't think it's death. He'll just go away after he achieves his goals with Yuuri. They'll have a beautiful, passionate but short-lived fling. The break up will hurt Yuuri but he'll recover and look back on his time with Victor fondly.
>>
>>
>>149889364
People DO give a shit about yuri but we've been getting that from everywhere for years so it's not a big deal anymore
>>
>>149894838
Victor's idea was good in theory but as per drama conventions, they haven't actually communicated enough so Victor didn't understand what was at the root of Yuri's anxiety.

Yuri is right, too. If Victor wants to coach him properly, he needs to work out how to fix Yuri's anxiety problems, or at least minimise them before a comp. Yuri has already proven he has the raw skill and talent on ice, it's just his attitude that sucks.
>>
>>149894985
>I feel like Victor is a sort of Manic Pixie Dream Girl

People need to stop saying this. Victor didn't drop out of the sky to fix Yuuri, he already knew who Yuuri was and had competed with him previously.
>>
>>149894985
>Stay by my side and never leave
Yeah no.
>>
>>149894985
I see where you're coming from, but I think episode 7 kind of turned this on its head. Yuri blowing up at Victor showed him in all his faults. He's not a good coach and has no idea how to help Yuri's real problems. This is why I think he'll go back to skating. He's great with technical and choreo but has no idea how to handle skaters emotions.
>>
>>149895035
>he already knew who Yuuri was and had competed with him previously
Rewatch episode one, he had no idea who he was.

>>149894838
>>149894877
>>149894951
>>149894956
>>149895022
Then what the fuck was the problem in the last thread?
>>
>>149895083
Sure he did, he asked him specifically if he wanted a photo because most competitors all take pictures of each other at a competition like that.
>>
>>149894985
If they do the storyline arc properly, season one will be about Yuri learning to overcome his pre-skate jitters, and season two will be about Victor learning how to coach and relate to people properly.
Or, it could even be that the second half of the season will focus on that. It's already lining up to be the case after this episode. I have no doubt there will be a few more fights before Victor gets it.
>>
>>149895115
Hardly, the phrasing was 100% like Victor thought he was a fan.
>>
>>149895102
One guy couldn't admit he was wrong.
>>
>>149895102
The problem was that that one anon didn't think Victor's threat was a threat at all, but a legitimate offer to help Yuuri by leaving if they lost. Victor was clearly lying and not going to leave even if Yuuri did lost, plus the only reason he did that was to fuck with Yuuri.
>>
>>149895102
I have no idea. Yuuri all but says he doesn't want to hear Viktor implying implications about losing OR for Viktor to leave. There was no reason for that shouting match about semantics.
>>
>>149895102
Eh, one buttmad anon couldn't cope with the truth.
>>
Yakov said Victor still had long ways to go as a coach. There's room for improvement, just saying.
>>
>>149894353
Best bois.
>>
>>149895160
Yakov is foreshadowing what is going to happen in the next few episodes. Yuri is growing and getting better but Victor hasn't improved as a coach yet.
>>
>>149895136
Only 6 people advance to GPF, are you implying Victor has memory so short he forgets fellow athletes he competes with?
>>
>>149895193
Yes.
That's part of the joke with him, he's forgetful.
>>
>>149895186
>Yuri is growing and getting better but Victor hasn't improved as a coach yet
This might be a parallel to what Yuuri envisioned for his first Eros routine. The woman seducing the man will leave the seduced man.
>>
>>149895155
Actually, that anon never said it was a legitimate offer. They just said he came up with the offer instead of believing in Yuuri like he should've. It dissolved into shitflinging after that, but nobody in the thread seemed to think Viktor was serious about it either way.

Nobody was listening to each other, it was a typical /a/ argument.
>>
>>149895136
>>149895083
What the fuck, how come I didn't notice up till now.
This whole time I thought Yuuri was just ashamed to meet his idol for the first time as this one loser who messed up and ranked 6th.
Well, Viktor wasn't wrong though, he's probably so used to being around fans, he knows one when he sees one.

Or it might be that Yuri will go further than Victor like he wants.
>>
>>149895035
I don't really mean it literally, more like how it feels for the audience. Obviously Yuuri had idolized Victor since forever and Victor knew him at least by name.

>>149895116
They probably don't have plans for the story for a second season.

>>149895057
This makes sense and it's true Victor hasn't really fixed Yuuri and shouldn't be able to do that. I just can't shake the feeling Victor won't be by Yuuri's side in the end.
>>
>>149895211
Trust me, I was arguing for hours, they kept saying they didn't believe it was meant to be a threat when clearly the whole scene framed it as a dramatic, negative offer.

We all agreed Victor fucked up and should've believed in Yuuri.
>>
>>149895221
In the normal skating world all the skaters are really close to each other because beyond competitions they also perform together in shows.
The fact that Yuri says that he's never met Victor before tells me that maybe Yuri hasn't done much socialising with the other skaters beyond the ones he trained with in Detroit.
>>
>>149895273
Saying it's not a threat isn't saying he was serious though. They said he came up with a dumb offer and that an offer isn't a threat, but anon never said that Victor was going to follow through with it.

If that was you arguing, you assumed stuff just as much as they did. I just finished reading the thread, I can tell you that for sure.
>>
>>149895260
>I just can't shake the feeling Victor won't be by Yuuri's side in the end.
To me, that all depends on Victor's motivation. If he wants to continue coaching I'm sure they'll stick together, but I think he'll go back to skating because Yuri has reignited his love and interest in the sport. Yuri will be his first real challenge in ages.

He wasn't even in touch with the people he was with in Detroit. The first time he called Ciao Ciao after GP was when Victor asked him about his former coach. He called Phichit not to catch up but to ask a favor.

He's really socially awkward.
>>

Because one anon said it was Victor trying to give Yuri a way out as a comfort or whatever, completely denying it was a threa/ultimatum.

From what I understood, the anon did think that it was a legitimate "out" offered by Victor instead of it being the complete lie it was meant to "shatter his heart."

There was a lot of us near the end and it just devolved into us talking in circles over and over, so I'm going to back off now instead of restarting this shit again. It was entertaining though.

where did kubo confirm the kiss?

I'm rewatching episode 2 at the moment.

How DID Yuri inspire Victor? I still don't really understand the motivation for Victor to coach Yuri. It's never really explained that well.
>>
>>149895273
I'm not dragging this argument back into this thread with you. You can have the last word if you want it, but let's be clear. I never thought Victor was serious about the offer, he himself says he wasn't. Like >>149895313 says, offers aren't threats. That was the entire point, and now I'm done talking about this for good.

>>149895337
Shit taste, but you just reminded me of how badly I want to see some of the show's routines in that brushstroke style. I still can't believe one person animated that whole thing by themselves, that's crazy talent.

>but anon never said that Victor was going to follow through with it.
Yeah but that wasn't then point of contention. Anon was claiming Victor did it in an effort to make Yuri "feel better." That's what was so wrong.
>>
>>149895486
It's not too clear now, but they're definitely going to devote time to explaining it later.

>Another Yuri gets focus in each installment
>It's never Fairy
>He only shows up as a recurring side character and his story is told through snippets of news
>>
>>149894985
This bit of dialogue makes me think otherwise anon

>>149895260
It's hard for me to imagine such a happy, lighthearted show with little drama would have such a depressing ending.
The song that brought them together promises them to stay together too.
Besides, canon homo characters in non BL/GL shows most often than not get heartbreak or die. If this show followed that pattern that wouldn't be making history. This show is here to surprise not to repeat.

>>149895285
It's just like Nishigori said in episode 2. He doesn't have many friends because he isn't good at putting himself out there.
He probably avoided shows and contact with other skaters as much as possible and spent the competitions staring longingly at Viktor without ever talking to him, just like he was doing in epsiode 1 "Ah, if I do have a chance one day I'd like to- oh shit" Except Viktor senpai finally noticed him, at the worst moment possible too.

>>149895285
Plus they even say that Yuri has always had trouble making friends.

do you fags have to be so gay
>>
>>149895507
don't see it

>>149895486
I thought it was because Yuri was the only person Victor ever saw on earth who could copy him down to a tee. Just like on episode 7 where he rotated 4 times but didn't stick the landing and everybody say it was Victors signature move or something.
I have a feeling it's because Victor spent his life wanting to find somebody like him, and Yuri was the first person to ever really meet his super high thinking.
Just my thoughts.

>since not every skater is attached at the hip with their coach
But Yuri is, and they both know it. It's not just about leaving either, what scares Yuri is that his loss will drag Victor down too, not the loss in itself.
>>
>>149895586
>copy him to a tee
But did he? They didnt show him doing the jumps and we know he was struggling with quads.
>>
>>149895486
To Victor, being surprising is key. What's more surprising than dropping skating for a season to coach?
We don't know why from Victor himself though, except some flowery bullshit.
>>
I think they kinda messed up Yurio's character growth when he left for Russia.
>>
>>149895662
I hope we get some insight from Victor about his motivation before the show is over.
>>
Why does no one care that Victor is clearly an alcoholic?
>>
>>149890968
You probably should have shown Oscar at least. This one didn't feel all that gay.
>>
>>149895722
because most russian men are

>>149891220
The only boy worth watching for.
>>
>>149895698
Nah, it will be made clear in ep 8.
>>
>>149895722
>Russian
>>
>>149895698
Fairy's character is completely irrelevant considering they won't even show any of his programs or more struggle. Episode 4 tricked us all.
>>
>>149895622
Nah he didn't nail the technical parts.
But Viktor still thought Yuuri performed the routine better than himself, not technically, but in feeling. Even Minako comments on how this routine, which is about being abandonned and resenting love itself then loving again, just doesn't suit a slut like Viktor.
>>
>>149895698
You don't get to say that when the show isn't even finished yet.
>>
>>149895722
Because being an alcoholic is the only reason he'd kiss Yuri.
>>
>>149895781
>slut like Victor
Manwhore confirmed, breakup imminent.

So for your anons who know a thing or two about ice skating. Just how bad does it hurt when you fail to stick your landings bust your ass all over the ice like Yuri has did a few times?
And him smacking his face into the wall that time should have knocked him flat out, right?
It always bothered me he just got a bit of a bloody nose from clearly smacking his face going full speed like that.
